On a unrelated note, I still dislike the 2000s, and I'm glad that decade is over. If people ever start getting nostalgia for it, I'll puke.

There's not much I like about the 2000s, except perhaps the presence of tons of cheap DVDs of old movies and TV shows (before I got high-speed internet and found the IA). I still have a box of 200 or more of those dollar store slimcase PD DVDs.

I thought the same about the 90s. But, I'm also sure my parents thought the same about the 60s and 70s. I was raising kids in the 80s and 90s, and really didn't have time for all the coolness that came out of that time. My kids were into video games, but I didn't have a chance to get into them until they were grown. So, when my son sees me playing an old Final Fantasy game, he thinks, "Oh, that's right, mom was really busy being mom when this was new."

This is now the era of "instant gratification", and short attention spans. Want to know what I mean? Watch a commercial from the 50s and 60s, and count the scene changes. Now, watch a current commercial and count those scene changes (if you can keep up with it). You're going to notice that commercials are shorter now, but have the same amount, if not more images flashing on the screen than before. very few young people (our Matthew doesn't count because he's awesome) can't handle looking at the same image on television for more than a split second.

But, I am convinced the 2000s is the lamest decade since the 1940s. The second-half the 1990s was uneven, with 1999 a complete load of rubbish, but even the 1990s was better than the 2000s.

I'd say the 2000s and 1910s are about equal in their low quality as a period in history. Both had some good elements, but not enough to save them. 1950s and 1980s were weak in many respects but the pop-culture saves them. 1960s was a mess that's impossible to rate. 1940s is a complete load of garbage that not even the wonderful music and movies can save.

On a more positive note, the 2010s hasn't been too bad so far....

I do understand what you're saying. I guess what I'm getting at is that you might very well think differently in another 20 years or so.

See, i was your age in 1981. I thought that same way about the 50s, and a large part of the 60s. But to me, the late 60s had a lot of charm, and I think part of that is due to my early childhood was in the late 60s.

The really loud, paisley prints, horrid colors (avacado green, etc.) late 60s pop music... it all brings me back.

I think what you're talking about is a lot more "factual" than what I'm saying. And that's a difference between you and me... I go by how things make me feel, or what it reminds me of. If it's pleasant, then I like it.

As far as current television or current music... I simply don't pay any mind to it.

I'm having flashbacks of my mother's lime green and orange muu-muu...

Sorry, Matthew... didn't mean to turn this topic into a 60s flashback.

BTW, I do understand what you mean about the 2000s. Honestly, everything from the 2000s looked and sounded the same to me. Movies, music, television, all looks and sounds the same. I find it difficult to find any television show (I don't want sitcoms very often) that doesn't shove sex and loose morals down my throat. Music all sounds the same with lots of driving guitar (which isn't bad if it has character) and either someone singing like Cookie Monster, or they're whining about how horrible everything is. Country music used to be the last resort for anything uplifting, and it's even becoming trashy.

I can't think of more than one or two movies made in the 2000s that were worth my time. Matt mentioned games, but the last I had was my box of 60 games and my old Atari 2600 (which I donated to Goodwill 20 years ago).

I wish I would have kept my 2600.

On another game-related note, I was about floored when I found out that the original Final Fantasy VII I had (that I gave away because I was done with it) sells for about $400 now. It was all original, original box, the booklet that comes with it, the whole thing and I gave it away.

And that's about the only game I don't play! Actually, I don't do well with any "timed" game. I can not think correctly if I am up against a clock. Now, take the time element away, and I'll do just fine... in fact, I'll probably be able to beat any time limit, but knowing that I have to beat a certain time makes me nervous.

Can you all tell I'm bored today?

To me the only redeeming features are the video games, YouTube, TV, comic books and movies. With the exception of YouTube, it wasn't even the peak of those mediums.

The ever-increasing use of CGI in movies is one of the worst things about the 2000s in my opinion. It seems nobody knows how to make a film without CGI anymore. As for YouTube, I liked it at first, but it's become a minefield of partners and trolls, and it's difficult to find real content made by real people. Everything is "rate-comment-subscribe" so the partners and vloggers can cash in. That's Big Brother Google for ya, all about ads and $$$.

On that note, I seem to notice a change in the way new "films" are being presented. For quite some time now, the way movies are being made, it seems they are not shot with cameras that actually have FILM in them. they are shot with hi-def digital cameras which aren't really anything more than fancy camcorders. The images aren't committed to film until all the post production work is done. All the editing and dubbing is done on computers, so there is really no physical matter to land on the "cutting room floor". AND (check this out...) I went to see "Iron Man 2" today and as I watched this "film" I noticed on a couple of places on the screen that there was a line of static that flashed from time to time. Static? On a movie screen? I don't think they were using a film projector to show this movie. I think it was some sort of VIDEO projector. Those aren't that new, as I remember going to a club in Freemantle (Australia) that played music videos instead of records to dance to, the images were projected on a large screen by the dance floor, and that was back in '82.

Sad but true. While shootingthe "film", "Queens of Country", I was curious of the making of it. I noticed the monitor hookup for the scene that was going to be "shot". The image was taped but made to look like film.
On the set itself, the "cameras" were expensive data memory card machines. I asked why instead of film amd the technician smiled, saying"we haven't used a film camera for nearly 20 years. The editing of a "film" is done on a computer not a old editing splicer".

I'd shoot a film on FILM again...if I could afford to. But I can't ("I must, but I cannot!") so I shoot digital now.
